Mundipharma will have exclusive product rights in 39 European markets including France, Germany, Italy and Spain, but excluding Hungary, Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. First country launches may begin in 2016 following registration and local pricing and reimbursement approvals.
Under the terms of the agreement, Mundipharma will pay MVP upfront and milestone payments of up to $54.5 million US dollars (USD), including:
- USD $7 million upon signing;
- USD $3 million upon receiving Marketing Authorisation approvals in Belgium (already received) and France (expected shortly); and
- USD $7 million upon receiving first reimbursed sales in France, Germany, Italy and Spain;
- The remaining USD $37.5 million on achievement of certain sales based milestones.
Additionally MVP will receive a gross margin on product sold to Mundipharma and royalties based on net sales.
The agreement brings together two companies in a strategic collaboration that leverages their individual strengths, combining Mundipharma’s extensive and sustained experience in pain management globally, as well as its strong commercial capabilities, which will complement MVP’s expertise in manufacturing and emergency medical solutions.
Commenting on the alliance, MVP CEO Mr. John Sharman said, “Mundipharma shares our vision for Penthrox® and is committed to the development of Penthrox in Europe. Moreover, Mundipharma has the reach and financial capacity to drive sales much harder and faster than we could do with our own resources. Their role extends beyond simply marketing the product, as Mundipharma will play an active role in the further development of Penthrox for existing and new clinical applications”.
Kate Hurtig, Head of Pain at Mundipharma International, added, “Mundipharma has a proud heritage in pain management and continually strives to advance new therapeutics in this space. With this alliance we are excited to expand our portfolio into the field of emergency pain relief and we look forward to quickly advancing the European development and commercialisation of Penthrox to maximise its success. We are delighted about the opportunity to work with Medical Developments International and the prospect for growth that this collaboration brings.”
